With lyricist Kurt Feltz, Werner Scharfenberger wrote a song for the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974, a typical Schlager effort called ‘Die Sommermelodie’. It was performed by Cindy & Bert and was the West German entrant in the festival in Brighton. Scharfenberger himself conducted the orchestra. That year, West Germany came joint-last with only three points scored.
In due course, a more extensive biography of Werner Scharfenberger will be published on this website
